Hawaii Governor Says No to Card Checks

Article prepared by Darren Rumack and Brian Caufield. 

As promised, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle vetoed a bill that would have allowed the Hawaii Labor Relations Board to recognize a union based solely on card checks.

Lingle claimed that card check authorization would be a “poor substitute for the secret ballot and is ripe for abuse.”

Of course, this card check authorization scheme mimics that of the proposed Employee Free Choice Act, which if passed, would do away with secret ballot elections.
